question about the rollout of obama care. you came down very hard on hhs, dr. sebelius when she came before congress last week. you said that what disturbed you most of all was that people were feeding in to this website vital information about themselves. you were very concerned about the security of that information that it was now just out there for people to take. are you satisfied yet that this has been corrected or will be corrected? >> well, no. what was really shocking to me is even by their own words they admitted that there was a high degree of risk when they were offering the website to go public, they never told anybody about that. they said that they think the risk was acceptable. their information wasn't at risk, american people's information was at risk. they're trying to change a tire on a car going 75 miles an hour down the expressway. that is not the way cybersecurity works. and unfortunately both diane and i both know the real threats to these systems when you have nation states, organized crime groups and criminals trying to get information that is now available on thes
's go back to the model of '06, '08, and '12. you guys pushing for a standard on obama care, that's risky. no, no, no, no. just keep your head down and we'll win races. that's not how you win races. that's based on the oh, so clever idea that if your opponent is here on the spectrum, that you have to be infinitesimally to their right so that you can capture every marginal voter right up to where they are. the problem is if you do that you destroy every single reason anyone has to show up and vote. >> so which visual will win out in the republican party? ed rendell and michael steele. governor rendell, sometimes when i watch that guy, they turn off the sound if that's possible. i see a evangelicalist with the hands and the religious intonation and gesture. is he apocalyptic? is this something years from now we can decide or something right now something really apocalyptic. we either go the right way which is godly or we're going the wrong way which is ungodly. i mean, is this about budget deficits? is this about something you put your fingers on like mathematics? or something else

on to this new book that is out, called double down, this washington tell-all and it claims the obama administration toyed with the idea of swapping out joe biden with hillary clinton for vice president. what have you heard, is there any truth to this? what has the reaction been from the white house? >> during the election last year, this was certainly rumored. maybe more among pundits than it was from the campaign staff. but i think when you looked at how the president was, if you recall, there were moments where he certainly seemed to have lost some of the momentum of 2008, there was talk about how can we revive the excitement around his campaign. so it may have been discussed it. looks like the higher level folks are disagreeing over how seriously it was discussed. david plouffe was saying this is not something that we took to the president at all. bill daley certainly said it was tested. i think they were probably looking at all options, but probably was not that serious. they certainly stuck with joe biden and seemed to work fine. >> david, have a great monday. >>> and coming up,

allegations of nsa spying on european allies have sent the obama administration scrambling. today u.s. officials will sit down with lawmakers from the european union to discuss the latest round of spying allegations. reports said the nsa monitored cause of 35 world leaders including france and germany. the latest charge comes from germany where the nsa allegedly monitored chancellor angela merkel's cellphone decade. one paper wrote that president obama was made aware of it in 2010 and allowed to continue. the nsa denies the president knew anything. >>: much of its discarded. merkel placed an angry phone call to the president and another german officials say is this has shaken their confidence in the united states where are the claims coming from a document from nsa leader edwards and aldon. and anger over clams the nsa is spying on people around the world is spilling into the streets of washington. demonstrators rallied against the nation's surveillance programs on saturday. a state department spokeswoman says president obama has directed the government to review and surveillance ca

down until they were able to get funding for the law. the -- the challenge with the funding challenge back in 2010. when barack obama and the senate allies decided to hijack a budget process to ram through the law without popular or even bipartisan support. if you look at the history of the united know callly major change in social policy not social security, not medicare, not even the civil right act was able to be successful over the long-term without any bipartisan support. president obama and his allies decided to enact health care law with just the 51 votes purely partisan majority and that is why we have the funding challenge now because we have a major if i of republicans in the house they control the pursestrings and it's within their constitutional right to deny funding to a law they don't agree with. the founders of this great nation wanted there to be broad consensus before laws were passed. they neither wanted a single person, nor a single chamber of commerce to be able to impose its will on the public. so they deliberately designed a system with checks and plans that requ

of insistence may be partly why he is not president. shutting down the government to repeal obama care proved to be a real debacle for the republican party, they were not able to repeal or de-fund the obama care in any way. since that debacle, the republicans have decided to change tactics, to hold hearings on why the law doesn't work better for more people. which is a great question, why is the law not working better? why are people getting conflicting information? all good questions. it is weird at a base level that the questions are being posed by the same group of people who shut down the law. if you hate it so much, why do you care whether or not it works? today, secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius testified before a republican house committee on problems with the rollout of the health care law. one republican congressman told her she was not in kansas anymore. another told her, he thought he saw her riding her bike in kansas when she was a child. it was a weird hearing. at one point, the secretary just said whatever. in the middle of an answer at a particularly badg

. today, the court overturned an obama care provision mandating businesses cover their employees' birth control. this year, it invalidated the president's national labor relations board appointments, making the body nonfunctional. last year, it struck down epa rules on air pollution. all of that from this one court. now, republicans filibustering a nominee isn't new. what is new and dangerous is the reason. you see, the d.c. appellate court has 11 seats, three of those seats are now vacant. and the judges who are there reliablely deliver conservative rulings. if the president could appoint one judge, it would tip the court's balance. if he could fill all three vacancies, it would transform the court and all of american justice. but republicans are now saying that democrats can appoint no one to fill those vacancievacan. in fact, they are now saying that appointing people to fill vacancies is, get this, court packing. >> this court is not one that needs more judges. as he's trying to pack the court in order to affect the outcomes. >> packing the court because it has issued rulings agains

consumers may not have any luck getting coverage, they now can buy insurance through obama care. the issue, though, is for many consumers is what they will be paying is going to be a lot higher in some cases. perhaps not all cases. some may see their premiums go down. but the white house says -- argues that those are going to get better coverage in the long run. >> jim acosta at the white house. thanks. we now know the president wasn't necessarily precise with his words back in 2009. to be precise he should have said something like this. he should have said, if you like your health insurance, you might be able to keep your health insurance. if you like your doctor, you might be able to keep your doctor. on the other hand, millions of you will lose that specific health insurance policy because of the changes required by the affordable care act. but your new policy, new policy, may even be better than the old one because it will, in fact, give you greater protections and greater benefits. many of you might either wind up paying less each month because you might qualify for government subsidi

with president obama for u.s. military and intelligence assistance to put down the violent insurgency that's gotten worse since the u.s. pulled out of there two years ago. thousands of iraqis have been killed in bombings that have become almost routine and really have never gone away since the height of the war after the u.s.-lead invasion. the president said he made no promises. >>> tonight u.s. and pakistani officials say an american drone strike has killed a big target, the leader of the taliban in pakistan. hakeem molamasoud is believed to had $5 million u.s. bounty on his head. he's believed to have been behind that failed car bombing in times square back in 2010. his death, if confirmed, comes as drone strikes are under scrutiny for the often killing innocent civilians nearby. >>> as we reported last night there is a new bombshell of a book about to come out that's revealing some of the best-kept secrets of the most recent race for the white house from republican back stabbing to president obama's feelings about president clinton to a possible move to switch running mates. nbc's andr
. >> for years the obama administration with the c.i.a. at the forefront has been trying to track down the leader of the pakistani taliban. according to the fighters, one was killed in a drone missile attack. he was suspected of planning an attack that killed seven c.i.a. employees at a u.s. base in afghanistan. >> leader of the pakistani taliban, he was the most wanted man in pakistan. the u.s. had a $5 million bounty on his head. >> this is one of his last public appearancesment - in a video filmed in an unknown location, he speaks to those who consider talks as a way of achieving peace. >> translation: we have never refused negotiations. we believe in all talks that are serious. if the dialogue is frivolous and they ask us to lay down arms, this is not serious dialogue. >> he took over as leader of the pakistani taliban in august 2009. he won a power struggle after another was killed in a drone attack. in his late 20s or early 30s, his rise to power was dramatic. his power base numbered 8,000 fighters. when he took command pakistani intelligence sources said it grew to 20,000 fighters. he had

. >> they have offered no alternative. no alternative to the aca health obama care. so i think they need to be held deeply account able. it is just insane they have gone from fighting to shut down the government in a default, holding, defunding, gutting obama care and now they are claiming they want all of this. i think it's important to look at the states by the way. what you were saying about premiums falling. in new york city premiums have fallen by some 50%. in states like kentucky. kentucky of. >> a democratic governor who decided to work with federal government. >> kentucky will be an interesting petri dish for a lot of reasons. lets hope mitch mcconnell gets beat by a tea partier. >> we're not. >> my husband's state, new deal time, decades ago, a democratic state. lets see how government looks in a state where the state exchange works. i think ryan is right and you're right that the administration was rightly banking on this reform threading and weaving itself into people's lives. then social security also took decades. social security came under attack -- >> prescription health p

, bush 92% and barack obama coming in third at 75%. and here's a great upside down example of what this obstruction looks like. you have a situation now in which senator chuck grassley is basically saying that president obama, in trying to appoint a nominee to fill a vacate seat on that court is engaged in "court-packing." are we officially through the looking glass? >> well, i think we are in a period where it's going to be very hard for the government to function, and really, you're going to have to see a change in the parties. in california, the solution turned out to be the democrats getting the kind of majority where they could pass things without worrying about the filibusters or blocking. so, maybe that's the solution. >> yes, you just wrote a piece in which you basically think the path out of the wilderness from this sort of deadlock of destruction and obstruction and dysfunction is basically just winning all the way around. you point to california, the only way out of this is just overwhelming maximum majorities, but that's not plausible nationwide, is it? >> well, there's

that was interested in keeping the government shut down in an effort to repeal obama care completely. it's interesting that this is now his number one concern. >> so i'm just getting this hot note saying that senator lamar alexander, the senior republican on the senate health committee is asking that it's time for the president to ask secretary of health and human services to resign in reference to kathleen sebelius. again, today's hearing is a precursor to kathleen sebelius taking questions tomorrow. lee, also coming out today to start out the new workweek, the rnc has a series of new ads out today making fun of the obama care rollout. so they smell blood in the water here when it comes to obama care but it doesn't seem as if the rnc republicans have ever really taken the foot off the gas about obama care. so isn't this just more to be expected? >> well, sure. the glitches show the administration has clearly made mistakes with the rollout of this health care portal but they don't have a loyal opposition to work with. in a two-party adversarial system, the opposition party has a role to play in provid
up a little bit because the republicans shut down the government over an effort to defund obama care. and even people who have questions about the health care law didn't think that was the right approach. they want them dealt with sepratley. they don't want the entire government shutdown to deal with issues with the health care law. you're right about the consistency. if you look at the polling on the health care law, it's pretty locked in on a partisan breakdown. republicans don't like it, most democrats do, and there's a slice who don't think it's liberal enough. when republicans say a majority of americans oppose the law, in some polls they're right, but part of the slice are people who think the law didn't go far enough, not people who didn't like the law just being there in the first place. >> i'm going to talk a little more with dr. gupta seating next to me, but john king, my friend from dorchester, massachusetts, let's talk about the red sox. if they clinch in game six, this will be the first time they win at home since 1918. something tells me you're not just in town to cover
colleagues, after a 3 1/2-year campaign to repeal, to discredit, to even shut down the government over obama care, i want to say, get over it. we all agree that there are problems, but these are problems that i see being fixed. so i want to ask one -- oh, and i want to say that what we did under medicare part d can be an example of how we can work together. in fact, chairman upton and i both sent a letter asking for more money for community-based groups to help implement the program and make it work. we can work together. so if you could just briefly say, how are the navigators, how important are they in making this system work for the american people? >> well, what we know, congresswoman, is a lot of people are not web savvy and are not frustrated by the website because they don't have a computer, they don't want to use a computer, they don't trust a computer. they need a live human being to ask questions, get questions answered, talk about the plan, talk about insurance. so the navigators play a hugely important role. we have about 2500 trained navigators on the ground right now. we have t
